Dispatch from India


Before Christmas, my cousin, Kate Hovey, and her boyfriend popped to India and took just sickeningly beautiful photos. Here are some of my favorites. I want to go so badly (and/or paint my apartment peachy pink), it hurts!


Elephant topiaries and monkeys and pink sand (at the Presidential Palace in Delhi)!


It seems terrible to wear (or decorate with) anything but mixed plaids after seeing this man.

Gorgeous photos! I spent two months in India, & it was amazing. I'd love to go back.

That's it. I've just decided that my next trip will be to India. You've sold me.

Ashley and I went back in April--it blew us away. We keep saying we're going to post a trip report but just have can't quite finish it off!
Have you been? I think you'd love Delhi.
